Synthetic turf is an excellent option for a myriad of sports activities. From gym turf to outdoor soccer fields to football stadiums, there are a lot of advantages to synthetic sports turf.
Among all the applications of gym turf, CrossFit facilities, in particular, have found many advantages to installing synthetic turf in their facilities. Three benefits of CrossFit turf include:
- Low Impact on Joints
- Equipment Slides on CrossFit Turf
- Artificial Gym Turf Endurance
Low Impact on Joints
Artificial turf for CrossFit has the unique advantage of being easier on athletes’ joints. Unlike traditional grass, synthetic turf absorbs a lot of the shock that would normally be transferred to the body. Athletes can work out longer and harder without being stopped or hindered by injuries caused by impact.
Equipment Slides on CrossFit Turf
Many athletes and programs have incorporated sled pulling into workout routines. By adding weights, sled pulling can be an excellent workout for athletes at all levels of fitness. The only issue is that sleds need a smooth surface to slide on.
CrossFit turf provides that smooth surface, allowing sleds and other equipment to glide smoothly.
Artificial Gym Turf Endurance
Many CrossFit activities include dropping weights and other equipment and then picking them back up to repeat the process. With cement or hard floor, or even regular grass, these exercises won’t be an option. But with artificial Gym Grass, you’ll be able to deadlift, drop or even throw weights on the ground and it will not harm the artificial turf. Plus, dropping weights on synthetic turf will also be less noisy, especially when you have large groups of people all completing the same exercise.
